Congratulations to the two lucky Buyers who’s perseverance and tenacity paid off!  The new Buyer in Bridgepoint spent almost two years looking for the right home, and that includes almost a half dozen offers we made on other properties in South Miami and Coral Gables!  The new owner of 6250 SW 62nd Place had a similar experience – we began the search in Coral Gables, Brickell, and the Edgewater area off Biscayne Boulevard in October 2014, and low and behold found just the right place many months later! It was worth the wait for both!

My first closing in 2015 was one of my favorite homes listed in 2014! The house was a classic 1990 built with a mix of Florida Vernacular and Modernism, and spanned a beautiful 14,700 SF lot.

There was no one living at the property and no furniture inside when we listed it, so first on the agenda was transforming this already great house into a “home”. With the help of Jenny McCloskey Staging 515 San Antonio was furnished and accessorized into a magazine quality work of art! We had 3 offers come in and so many other interested parties. I congratulate both the lucky Buyers and Sellers and thank Jenny for a fabulous staging presentation!

Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coconut Grove! Cloisters on the Bay, Villa 1137

Sitting Area 2

List Price: $1,699,000.00

3 Bedrooms | 4 Baths

www.Cloisters1137.com

It has been an absolute pleasure to market and sell Villa 1137 at Cloisters on the Bay in Coconut Grove. I’ve sold many properties in and near the heart-of-the-Grove, but none so close to my favorite restaurants, Green Street Café and the Bombay Darbar Indian Restaurant. Anytime a prospective Buyer was late, I walked over to Green Street’s for a snack; when I had early evening showings I had dinner at Darbar after.

Those aren’t the only reasons though – I can’t say enough about that community. The people who live AND work there are wonderful (the guards are the best I have seen in my 20+ year real estate career), the grounds are beautiful and spectacularly kept; of course the tennis courts, club house, and pool are first class, and being nestled between the Barnacle Historic Park, Peacock Park, and Biscayne National Park is heavenly. Cloisters on the Bay is the best kept secret in Coconut Grove, although I guess not such a secret anymore – three of them sold there this month! Congratulations to the lucky Buyers!

Just Sold by Val Byrne in the Gables Marquis! 3232 Coral Way, Unit 1403

Gables Marquis

List Price: $338,000.00

2 Bedrooms | 2 Baths

The Buyer and I were so pleased to have found the Gables Marquis, a gem of a building a couple of blocks east of Miracle Mile. We looked at Ten Aragon, Merrick Place, Villa Isabella, and The Minorca in Coral Gables; and then searched Metropolis and Toscano in the Dadeland area before stumbling upon the Gables Marquis at 3232 Coral Way. It’s a wonderful mid-priced building offering a cache of amenities which include 24-hour guard, 24-hour valet, and a beautiful pool, gym and clubroom. You know what the clincher was? Floor to ceiling glass with stunning, unobstructed views of Coconut Grove, Biscayne Bay and beyond. Congratulations to the Buyer!

Just Sold by Val Byrne at Quantum on the Bay!

A1970697_301_12

List Price: 399,000.00

2 Bedrooms | 2 Baths

We closed on this wonderful loft in Quantum on the Bay earlier this morning. Located in the heart of Miami’s up-and-coming hotspot, Edgewater is booming with activity. There are countless attractions in the area, however, my favorite has to be Margaret Pace Park, located right along the Bay which makes for beautiful views and cool breezes on hot summer days; with basketball courts, beach volleyball courts, tennis courts, barbeques and picnic tables throughout and not to mention the entire park is dog friendly! Congratulations to the Buyer, who was thrilled to be downsizing from house to condo, and really happy to be in the Quantum community.

5 Bedrooms | 4 Baths

We closed this beautiful gated estate on a private street in lovely Killian estates after only being on the market a couple of weeks. Soaring coffered ceilings, elegant kitchen, and spectacular millwork set this home in a class by itself. The fountain, gardens, and pool were so wonderful I was sold the moment I drove up. Congratulations to the buyers and sellers!

Going, Going, Gone…It Went That Fast!

IMG_5741

1110 S. Alhambra Circle | 3 Beds/3 Baths | 2,604 Adj. SF | Asking Price 1,150,00 OR $6,200/mo

On June 5th I listed this beautiful, sophisticated colonial-style home in Coral Gables (South Gables) for rent and for sale, and in a nanosecond it was under Contract! We started showing it on Friday and by nightfall Saturday we had multiple offers to buy it and to rent it.   I think the owners were so taken aback by the enthusiasm (and by the determination of some) that they decided to keep the property (we rented it at the asking price of $6,200).

That is a typical day in sunny Coral Gables in the rental and sales market! The inventory of luxury homes to rent is especially low, so these charming rental homes in Coral Gables are being snapped up about as quickly as they enter the market. It is the same situation in South Miami/High Pines, Coconut Grove, and Pinecrest too. In the last week or so luxury rental properties at 460 San Servando Avenue, 741 Santurce Avenue, and 700 San Esteban Avenue have come on the market in Coral Gables, and if I were to guess, they will be going, going, gone very shortly. Call me if you are interested in learning more!

751 Santurce Avenue | 3 Beds/3 Baths | 3,034 SF | $5,900/mo

751 Santurce Avenue | 3 Beds/3 Baths | 3,034 Adj. SF | $5,900/mo

And the Real Estate Forecast Continues to be Sunny Skies……

 

Ron Shuffield, President and genius data cruncher at EWM Realty International delivered our spring outlook last week and the forecast is SUNNY!  Watch this quick video to hear it for yourself, but in a nut shell Ron summarized the last three years of real estate sales in Dade County (2011-2013) as being record breakers.  Each year the number of sales of single family homes and condominiums exceeded the prior year, and these were double digit increases!

 

 

Ron expects to maintain high levels of sales in 2014.  Our indicator of future sales is the amount of inventory of properties for sale, more specifically,  the ‘number of months’ of inventory available. In Dade County we have about 5-6 months of supply right now, which Ron believes is a healthy amount.  In my 20 years selling homes in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami, Palmetto Bay, and Pinecrest, I find that a little on the low side, and with that trend prices usually increase.  As Ron says in the video, it is very “neighborhood specific”.

South Miami Number of Homes For Sale & Sold in the past year 1mil - 2milSouth Miami Number of Homes For Sale & Sold in the past year 500,000-1mil

I’m working with a lot of Buyers looking for homes in South Miami, Coral Gables,
and Coconut Grove in the $650,000-$1,000,000 range, and there are very few options out there.  In South Miami alone there is
very little, and even if we stretch budgets up over $1,000,000 the same holds true.

Buyers need to be working realtors who know the market, and know the minute a new home comes on the market. That’s what it often boils down to –  seeing a home and making an offer on day ONE.  Best news in Ron’s spring forecast is that our prices are generally still 35%-40% less than they were at the peak of 2007, and so there are still tremendous values in Miami.
